Okay, thanks.  From the reply by you and Scott and from
what I have read in the Rev Docs I take it the clipboard
cannot be shown.  But I can find out what is on it and I
can also paste what is on it.  So if I want to actually see
what is on the clipboard I need to build a stack to copy
the contents of the clipboard rather than actually being
able to show the clipboard itself.

thank you both,
